Package: manpages-fi
Version: 0.2-2
Severity: normal

Many of the Finnish manpages are severely out of date. Whilst I haven't
yet found any completely wrong information, many of the pages are
missing some of the newer options (e.g. tar -j, grep -a, etc.) or some
other information (e.g. man perl, which shows only part of the available

The best fix of course would be the correction of the pages in question;
however, if that is too much to ask for, I suggest the following:

* have the package description mention that many of the manpages contain
  inaccurate information, and

* have the Finnish manpages mention that the information may not be
  accurate, and refer to the appropriate English page, i.e. something
  like this:
  "Tämä ohjesivu saattaa sisältää vanhentunutta tai puutteellista
  tietoa. Ajantasaiset tiedot ovat englanninkielisellä sivulla, jonka
  saat näkyviin komennolla man -L C foo."

The manpages-fi package has been removed from Debian testing, unstable and
experimental, so I am now closing the remaining open bugs.

For more information about this package's removal, read
http://bugs.debian.org/348790 . That bug might give the reasons why
this package was removed, and suggestions of possible replacements.

Don't hesitate to reply to this mail if you have any question.

Thank you for your contribution to Debian.

Kind regards,
